I WANNA HOLD MY BABY
(J. Wheeler)
ONIE WHEELER (Columbia 21523, 1956)

Well, when I get the blues
It just ain't no care
Except when I can have my baby near
I wanna hold my baby (whoo-wee)
Hold my baby
I wanna hold my baby
Till these doggone blues go away

When I hold other babies
It don't mean a thing
It takes my baby to stop the pain
I wanna hold my baby (whoo-ooo)
Hold my baby
I wanna hold my baby
Till these doggone blues go away

Just to hold my baby
That's all I desire
'Cause she sets my very soul on fire
When I hold my baby (whoo-wee)
Hold my baby
I wanna hold my baby
Till these doggone blues go away

Sometimes I get the feeling, so depressed
Some mean things I've done
I can't get off my chest
Until I hold my baby (whoo-wee)
Hold my baby
I wanna hold my baby
Till these doggone blues go away

When I hold my baby
There just ain't no doubt
She doctors all the feelings inside me out
When I hold my baby (whoo-ooo)
Hold my baby
I wanna hold my baby
Till these doggone blues go away
